tv   The Daily Rundown  MSNBC  March 27, 2013 6:00am-7:00am PDT

6:00 am
morning, she rocks even at 6:00 a.m. >> you know what i learned? still, no matter how hard you try, you know who is up? the great -- >> what time is it? >> it's time for "morning joe." >> luke russert! >> just an hour from now, it's day two of the supreme court on the issue of same-sex marriage. the justices gave some clues on their thinking on tuesday, but are they headed in the direction of making sweeping changes for the whole country. also this morning in arizona, john mccain host a bipartisan group of leading senators of chuck sumer for a tour of the mexican border. can they make headway on a top priority for the second term? plus david petraeus talks publicly for the first time since stepping down.
6:01 am
find out what he had to say about the affair that ended his career. >> from abby road in london, england, march 27th, 2013 and this is "the daily rundown." here's chuck todd. >> chuck todd getting love from across the pond. what a guy. i'm luke russert in for the goatee man. that reading was inspired. with passions on both sides running high, they will run the second day of oral arguments on same-sex marriage. the issue before the high court, the constitutionality of the 17-year-old defense of a marriage act and whether congress can withhold benefits from legally wed gay couples. doma was signed into law by president clinton. an 83-year-old former computer
6:02 am
programmer from new york named edie windsor is the person bringing the case forward. doma barbie irs from recognizing her marriage to another woman. it sent her inheritance tax when her spouse died. >> i couldn't believe they were making a stranger of this person i loved for 43 something years. >> nine states permit same-sex marriage along with washington, d.c. 38 others ban it either by law or constitutional amendment. one of the states is california and yesterday proponents of proposition 8 argued it makes sense to limit marriage because only opposite sex couples can produce children. justice alaina kagan said whether that means they can bar older couples from marrying as well. >> even with respect to couples over the age of 55, it is very
6:03 am
rare that both parties to the couple are infertile. in the traditional -- >> really, if a couple -- i can assure you if both the woman and the man are over the age of 55, there not a lot of children coming out of that marriage. >> arguing against proposition 8, former bush administration solicitor general ted ol who joined with a liberal who treated olsson's argument that gay couples have a constitutional right to marry with skepticism. >> i'm curious. when did it become unconstitutional to exclude homosexual couples from marriage. 1791, 1868 when the 14th amendment was inducted?
6:04 am
>> when did it become unconstitutional to prohibit interracial marriages? >> do you want us to step in and render a decision based on,a se assessments that is newer than cell phones or the internet? >> widely seen as the swing vote, they suggested that children and same-sex marriage suffer immediate legal injury from california's ban, but he also wondered whether the court should have taken up the case in the first place. >> you are really asking particularly because of the sociological evidence you site to go into uncharted waters. i wonder if the case was properly granted. >> nbc news justice correspondent pete williams is live at the supreme court. reflect on what we heard yesterday and where it looks like that case will go. the real question i have is the
6:05 am
doma case, what implications could any ruling on that have to yesterday's case? from b to a. >> not a lot of spill over from today into yesterday. i think the dye is cast for yesterday. the majority of the court is trying to find a way to limit whatever it does to affect only california to somehow dispose of prop 8 and permit same-sex marriage to resume there. without issuing any kind of sweeping ruling on same-sex marriage. today i think even though the court will spend more time on whether the lawyers involved had the legal right to be here, it seems more likely to get a straight up or down vote on whether doma is constitutional. some of the arguments do overlap, but what the house republicans now defending the law will say is that the federal government is a separate entity
6:06 am
of government and has the right to set their own definition of marriage. the other side said the federal governments deferred to the states to define marriage. this is no different. there is overlap on whether it's proper constitutional to make a distinction between same-sex and opposite sex marriage. the proponents of making that distinction say they raise again the fact that only opposite sex couples can produce children and the other side said that's not a legally significant reason and nobody will call off an opposite sex marriage because same-sex couples are getting married. the two cases are different and i think the general feeling is the doma case will produce a definite out come. >> on that point with your knowledge of the court from folks i talked to who support the overturn of doma, they say they have a stronger principal from the justices because of the combination of state's rights
6:07 am
and the constitutionality factor, from your reading of the court, do you have guidance on what you received justices to go and are we looking at kennedy again? it all comes down to kennedy. >> that's pivotal and he wrote the two significant cases in the past. it's different here because you have a group of conservative constitutional scholars who are urging the supreme court to strike down doma on state rights grounds. they have no constitutional warrant to be defining marriage. that's always been something for the states to do. the landscape is different. >> pete williams for the supreme court. we appreciate it. >> former president clinton's transformation on same-sex marriage is a microcosm of the shift in the nation as a whole. in may of 1992 during his first presidential campaign, he gave a
6:08 am
landmark speech on gay rights in west hollywood, california. the first large scale campaign event for gays and lesbians. >> those of you who are here tonight, you represent a community of our nation's gifted people who we have been willing to squander. we can't afford to waste the capacities and the contributions and the hearts and the souls and the minds of the gay and lesbian americans. for every day that we discriminate, that we hate, that we refuse to avail ourselves of the potential of any group of americans, we are all less than we ought to be. >> soon after he became president, clint an's relationship eroded after he signed don't ask don't tell. in the middle of the campaign when the defense of marriage act
6:09 am
was passed, president clinton signed it into law. >> president clinton signed the bill from recognizing same-sex marriage marriages. without fanfare after returning from the campaign trip after midnight, mr. clinton signed the bill. the white house said the president long opposed recognition of homosexual marriages, but hopes the bill won't be used as an excuse to discriminate. >> earlier this month, the former president wrote an op ed call thing doma inc. patable with our constitution and saying it should be overturned. it pits the obama administration against house republicans who are the ones left defending the law. >> in our system of government, the administration doesn't get to decide what's constitutional. the supreme court does. our financing the lawsuit was to make sure that the proper forum
6:10 am
was used to make sure that we know what's constitutional and what isn't. >> nbc's senior editor mark murray is here with today's first read. i think we are fascinated with clinton's shift and how it speaks to the change in the democratic party. i want to put up the quote that claims clinton advocated for a marriage ban. ter kerry, clinton ventured should consider defying democratic interest groups by endorsing the bush proposal with gay marriage. either way, it shows you that even two campaigns ago, this was a central issue that some were saying democrats should go to the right on. now it seems that for any campaign coming up, the argument will be who switched first? the earlier supporter. who is more inclined? >> a lot of people on this
6:11 am
issue. politics always change and successful politics are the ones who change successfully. one thing worth noting is just 30% of the country supported gay marriage and moved 21 percentage points. that's just in nine years. you can look in 2004 and it was a good politics to be against gay marriage. now not. politics president obama has changed and hillary clinton changed. this is evolution for a lot of people. >> he's a master and fascinated how this is setting up president obama. against john boehner. >> this changed too and you did see when the house republicans took up the lawsuit and started to fund it, this was in the spotlight and it was very interesting, the stuff coming out of john boehner's office had to do with the keystone pipeline and issues like president
6:12 am
obama's organizing for action. nothing on these gay rights issues. the silence. >> even the lawyer does not want to talk to the press. immigration in arizona. michael bennett and chuck schumer and john mccain who will look at the border and seems the ball is moving on this to some degree. we are far away from the solution. >> the devil is in the details. we are supposed to get that the week of april 8th. we haven't gotten it yet. the press conference will be in no gals, arizona. i keep hearing they are close, but still nothing and we will have to find out. >> what is border security. senate madness. >> we have a great time. from my state of texas is facing a famous politician from new york state. we have a battle of southern titans in the 20th century.
6:13 am
huey long versus richard russell and strom thurman and ed brooks. this is just not the team to upset, but a very famous 18th century figure. >> sam houston is the only statue that is holding a gun. >> that's texas for you. >> for all your senate madness, go to first read on nbc round two at the supreme court. today's case has bigger implications for millions of same-sex couples nationwide. we will break it down next and former cia director david petraeus with the career-ending scandal. here's the politics run down for msnbc.

>> if the issue is letting the states experiment and letting the society have more time to figure out its direction, why is taking a case now the answer. >> that was justice sotomayor on whether the court has the right to brew on california's ban on same-sex marriage. the defense of marriage act and whether same-sex couples can be treated differently.
6:18 am
we have the adviser for lgbt advisers at the center for american progress. we have to start in terms of yesterday's case. it looks like all signs point it a dig that it couldn't be argued because it would pertain directly to california. >> we have to first keep in mind that this is all more speculative. if we followed the line of questioning last june, the we can't always tell what is in the justice's minds. this is a conservative court and a big step for the justices to
6:19 am
be thes declare the fundamental right. it sounded like they are not ready. >> in terms of today's case which i find interesting, you look at this and it was confusioning to us lay people. today is section three of doma. whether or not the government has the right to withhold the thousands of benefits that come from the actual marriage. in terms of that case especially in the lgbt community, this is more a possibility of moving forward and delivering a huge win. >> political win, but a legal win. a constitutional win. we are talking about whether the federal government can treat one group or class of citizens than the rest. that's a simple question. the answer is no. we hope that the ruling is going
6:20 am
to be known and we can't treat a certain class of citizens different than others. the conversation happening in the court yesterday got into the line of questioning and forced the narrative that lgbt people are a specific group of people in the united states that have been discriminated against. there is a precedent set through the line of questioning that we heard that will help the case we made today. >> two interesting legal arguments. the 14th amendment as well as let the states delegate it and let the states have the ability to do what they want. the federal government should be out. things that one would expect more conservative and liberal justices to agree on. >> that issue plays out in the sense and the state right issue suggests they might want to stay out of it.
6:21 am
it's the opposite effect. >> a clarifying point that is important to know about today and about the conversation around doma, if they strike down doma. marriage equality won't be the law of the land. in all the states that legally recognize smarame-sex marriagesy marriage has to be valid in the federal government's eyes. where i live i'm legally married. >> it's not that mississippi would have to accept a marriage from massachusetts. >> the state of mississippi would have to determine their own marriage guidelines. >> one question that i have which is fascinating as a lay person. what is the real connection from yesterday's case to today's case? there seemed to be overlapping factors. when you read it, you have to understand it.
6:22 am
it's distrust with the overlap. what's the real connection? >> yesterday's case i think is a much harder issue for the court. when the supreme court declares the existence of the fundamental right, that's a huge deal. about as big as it gets for the supreme court. that's a difficult thing for a conservative court to do. that's what the justices were feeling uncomfortable with. they can get their hands around and i think that's the -- they talked about the issues yesterday and they may be able to do more about the issues today. >> the last thing they find fascinating here. we have boehner versus obama. the house gop who spent the $3 million.
6:23 am
politics is not lost here. >> politics is not lost. that's why boehner jumped to spend that $3 million or however much he is spending. he is about sticking it to the president here. we continue to play politics for people's lives. that's what's happening. i told people i had mixed feelings about it. on one hand, it's a privilege to be part of this debate. it's debating and playing politics around my and livelihood. let's hope we can move forward. >> it will be an interesting few months. i'm sure june will make a lot of news. appreciate it. up next on the radar, a historic day for the secret service in which they signed the nation's toughest antiabortion law. david petraeus in his own words about the affair that ended his career. today's trivia question, march madness edition. how many states have five teams in this year's nca amen's

6:34 am
bill that said that the border is truly secure? >> that's a good question. you get the border security and border control. i think it's a control that we are getting there. border security has improved and i don't think at the end, they are going to be the stick issue in the debate. the path to citizenship. the discussions of how to manage a future flow of immigrants. that is key. if you want to address this fully and comprehensively, you may legalize the path to citizenship. the economy needs strong workers from time to time. if you don't have an adequate mechanism, that's the problem. we are having a problem with the union. that's really not willing to negotiate. that's what president obama could put pressure on the unions to support a workable program.
6:35 am
>> you responded to that and do you think that's the issue? is it more of a guest worker program that could upset union folks on the left or is it border security that can upset folks on the right? it's compromise that can come. that's your question. >> or what do you do with the folks here currently. there a lot of details to work out. who would have thought we would have a majority of folks supporting gay marriage and bipartisan support that is not controversial. republicans and democrats are coming together on immigration that seems to be bringing the country together. while there a lot of details to work out, they want to see action and comprehensive reform and don't want to deport and see the workers. >> the abortion laws getting stricker and gay marriage has support and no one would believe it. they want to go to you.

what's matter. what's interesting about this for the republicans, there's no isolation anymore. what happens in north dakota doesn't stay in north dakota. now it's going to force other republican be leaders, other republican candidates to talk about this issue for months to come because of what they're doing in one legislature in one of 50 states. >> part of the gop autopsy was not to talk about these types of contraception issues. >> this is a mentality of the rovian mentality. those who vote exclusively for this issue vote for candidates who are -- who are pro life. this is a winning issue for republicans. it's an issue that helps energize its base. we didn't lose the election because of life or marriage.

mitt romney in the white house now. this is the legislative version of todd akiken. >> not at all. you may have the majority of americans saying, yeah, let's not ban abortion, but that doesn't mean that's the issue that they vote for. those who vote exclusively on the issue of abortion, majority vote for candidates who are pro-livment. >> when you use this language, even if you're not part of that group and that's not your number one issue, if you keep hearing one party saying we're against that, we don't care about those people. those people are not important. this is what we're opposed to. they may be coming for me next. >> what's interesting is in light of what we heard over the last few weeks about this rebranding of the gop, these issues being at the forefront does not give them a lot of cover to put a better face on it as was said they wanted to do

lastly same-sex marriage, huge week for it. i'll go to you. it seems to me that on the democratic side that there's going to be a battle in the primary to see who is on the right side of history first, if hillary clinton gets in there, i don't think there's not going to be a primary, but there seems to be a huge shift to this. >> i think as people have said over the last few days, i don't think there's going to be a major democratic contender who has a different position on same-sex marriage than everybody else in the party. the question is the timeline. i don't know that it will matter three years from now is has we're talking about. one of the things, we sometimes think look at the polling, because younger voters are more likely to be open to same-sex marriage, that's a winning issue for democrats. that's assuming that's the issue that will decide the future elections. there's a wide range of -- >> yeah, there's a lot more.
6:55 am
